Our bodies have a remarkable capacity to heal themselves and we can now harness this ability through advanced medical treatments. These techniques were initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries, but now have evolved to address aesthetic concerns, sexual wellness/dysfunction, overactive bladder and urinary incontinence. P- R -P is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular repair AND rejuvenation throughout the body
Many women, even in a time when discussing sexuality has become so open and accepted, still are reluctant to bring up these issues with their doctors. Decreased sexual pleasure for a woman can stem from poor lubrication, pain with intercourse, the vaginal canal being too loose (less sensation) or too tight (discomfort), and difficulty or inability achieving an orgasm. Certainly, a low sex drive, or libido, can also occur, or even develop, alongside the other physical issues. These issues can greatly affect a woman’s self-esteem and thus result in significant stress between partners
What Is Female Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
Female Erectile Dysfunction includes vaginal engorgement syndrome and clitoral erectile insufficiency syndrome. These syndromes are caused by decreased arterial circulation in the vagina or clitoris which interferes with normal vascular physiologic processes during sexual activity. (In other words, there is a lack of blood flow to the clitoris or vagina that impairs a woman’s normal or natural sexual response.)
Clinical symptoms may include:
- Delayed vaginal engorgement
- Diminished vaginal lubrication
- Pain or discomfort during intercourse
- Diminished vaginal sensation or orgasm
- Diminished clitoral sensation or orgasm
What is the O-shot?
The O-shot is a simple procedure performed right in your doctor’s office to help improve female sexual health and wellness. Your own platelets are used to improve bloodflow to the clitoral and vaginal tissue in order to revitalize or enhance a woman’s sexual response.
What benefits can I have from the O-Shot?
- Decreased or resolved overactive bladder and/or urinary incontinence
- Decreased or completely resolved pain during sex (known as dyspareunia)
- Increased ability to have vaginal orgasms
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- A tighter vaginal canal (if felt to be too loose prior)
- A more elastic vaginal canal (if felt to be too tight prior, usually after menopause)
- Younger, smoother skin externally (lips of the vagina)
- Stronger and more frequent orgasms
- Increased vaginal lubrication
How is the O-shot Performed?
The procedure starts with the application of a numbing cream to the treatment areas. A routine blood draw procedure is performed. Once your skin is numb, a simple block is performed to the treatment areas to further numb the tissue. The platelets are then activated and then injected into the treatment areas while they are numb. Because of the numbing process, the procedure is virtually painless.
Does It Hurt?
Surprisingly NO! Because of the use of numbing techniques described above, the procedure can be done in a relatively painless fashion. There may be some minor discomfort, but overall the procedure is tolerated very well.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Typically you will get two O-shots about 2-3 months apart. You may start to notice some effect within 3 weeks of the procedure but full results could take up to 3 months for completion. Results can last a year or more, and maintenance treatments can be performed on a yearly basis.
